Beehive Coin Bank – Woodworking Plans

Seems to me that a fair proportion of beekeepers are also woodworkers. You can count me in that group for sure.

So this item caught my eye right away – DIY woodworking plans to build a “piggy bank” that looks exactly like a miniature Langstroth beehive.

Fun meets functional!

Dubbed the “Honey Money Bank“, this imaginative and easy-to-make project from Stonehaven Life would be great for just about any woodkeeping beeworker, uh… woodworking beekeeper.

The finished bank is 3 1/2″ x 4 1/8″ x 7″high.

Ideal beginners woodworking project

Here’s the low-down from the Stonehaven Life site:

This craft project is suitable for anyone with basic woodworking skills and tools — it can be built using only a table saw and a table-mounted router, although an electric sander is also recommended.

Our money bank construction plans include a materials cut list, step-by-step directions with detailed drawings and photographs, assembly instructions, and a metric conversion table for the convenience of overseas woodworkers.

They even offer painting pointers to finish it off.

Looking for a money-making opportunity?

Stonehaven Life has great ideas for using the bank as gift packaging for beekeepers who sell their honey and other hive products at local markets, and craft fairs. For a “very reasonable one-time fee“, you can purchase a license to make and sell Honey Money Banks as an add-on to your regular sales – fully finished or in kit form.
 
It’s certainly worth a look.
